Traveler Tips

Well worth the money and 2 hours to see this gem from the water!
If you are looking for a quick 2.5 hr tour of all the caves that cannot be seen in a safe boat, then this probably the most economical and fun filled tour.

Exciting boat sightseeing on beautiful caves
Chin_L, Aug 2022
We had a great time with Mauro and his colleagues. They both explained well on each spot. I wish we could have more time to take a picture on each stop.
Do not book through Viator or use Discovery Algarve
Diana_T, Jul 2022
The most memorable part was getting lost because of the pin dropped by clicking on the link provided by Discovery Algarve that led us no where near the point of departure. When we finally reached a place that had cell service Discovery Algarve offered no help and instead yelled, saying you are a no show deal with victor. Victor has yet to respond. A simple sorry for your experience I wish I could help you have been enough or even offering a discount on another product. Do yourself a favor and book directly with an operator in person. We ended up finding our way to Portimão and booked with a company on site for our journey.

Fun, informative and beautiful
Andrej_M, Jul 2022
Great introduction to the coastline that we hiked the next day. The tour was well organised and the tour guide André was funny and informative. Highly recommended. The boat had good, supportive seats. It's basically a large zodiac so it'll hit larger waves noticeably. The trick is to take the bump in your legs and not your bum, or it can be jarring on the spine. The quick ride back to Portimao was like an amusement park ride!
A great way to see the beautiful Algarve coast!
Fraser_G, Jul 2022
A nice way to spend some time away from beach and explore the beautiful Algarve coast. Perfect amount of time and guides were informative and fun.
Great 2.5 hour trip to the caves!
Annette_M, Jul 2022
This is a must do excursion in the Algarve, leaving out of Portimao. We went inside of several caves despite the water having some swells. Our captain was very skilled and knowledgeable. Felt safe and had a great time. The caves are GORGEOUS!

Fun experience and amazing scenery
Samo_S, Jul 2022
We had a great time with Algarve Discovery on a speedboat tour. Very professional and well organised company as well a great boat crew. We saw a lot in short time and even had an opportunity to jump into the ocean. We had a 13 and 5 year old kids as well her grandmother and they all had a lot of fun. Highly recommended.
Awesome views and guides!
kari_m, Jul 2022
Fantastic. Our two guides were entertaining, knowledgeable, nice, and safety-conscious. Views were beautiful. Guides made sure people got good pics. Gorgeous scenery. Fully worth every €€.

Fun day out
Anna_M, Jun 2022
Such fun. The trip was wonderful. The water was very cold. Such a beautiful coast line. Would recommend it.
Beautiful views with entry into the caves
Tracey_W, Jun 2022
The boat was small so we were able to navigate into several of the caves for viewing. Coastline and beaches were gorgeous. Boat ride was a bit choppy due to being in the ocean but nothing terrible. There were a couple of kids on our boat - everyone did just fine.
Beautiful natural open caves at the coastline
cathy_S, Jun 2022
Beautiful scenery, a fun boat ride, very safe, things you can only see from the water. Tour guides were entertaining. It’s a beautiful part of the country.
Fun boat tour to Benagil Cave
Tracey_F, Jun 2022
We had a great time in this tour! It was raining at first which made us a little nervous, but it turned out to be perfect. The tour and the guides were fantastic. Thanks for making our trip fun!
Fab trip
Lucy_P, Jun 2022
This was a fun trip and the staff were friendly. Lots of infomation about the caves, however there were a couple of caves I think could have been missed out. If we had missed out these caves there would have been more swimming time. It was a quick in and out, not much of a swim, a minute at best.
Taxi was late, rang to...
